– each school will fix its own timetable, says Manickchand

When schools are reopened for Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) students, the Ministry of Education (MoE) will not be implementing a universal plan, but will allow each school to create one that best suits its environment.
To this end, parents will be able to work out flexible arrangements with the teachers regarding how many days and how many hours per day, students will be required to attend classes in preparation for the 2021 examinations.

This was explained by Minister of Education, Priya Manickchand, on Tuesday, during a virtual meeting with parents of some of Region Four’s CXC students. On Monday, the ministry commenced the virtual meetings as a way of engaging parents in each education district one-on-one with regards to reopening school for students writing the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).
The Minister said given that schools have varying numbers of CXC students – some have a small number while others have larger numbers- it would be impractical of the ministry to ask all schools to use the same plan.

“We don’t want for the MoE to do one size fits all. We’re not saying at 8am everyone should come in; we’re saying to schools set your timetable. One school may want some students from 1pm to 5pm, or want students to come in on Saturdays. They may say some students come Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and other students come Tuesday, Thursday Saturday. We are leaving it up to the schools because we believe that they are responsible enough to set their schedules,” the Minister informed, as she responded to queries from the concerned parents.
The Minister explained that schools will be required to submit their respective proposed plans to the ministry, and in cases where a proper plan cannot be proposed the ministry will step in.

“We want to leave it up to the schools, but we will be in touch, and if they fail to give us a sensible plan we will step in. What we are doing essentially is helping schools to do a schedule, so that they can be guided because people may feel a little overwhelmed. We are currently doing a draft guidance for when SBAs should be done [and] how they should be done,” the Minister related.

MoE during the week will also be meeting with its teachers. Once the consultation process is complete, the ministry will make a final decision on the way forward.
Schools in Guyana have been closed since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Teaching is being done virtually, but many parents are worried that their children will suffer learning loss. Many do not believe that the virtual learning is sufficient, particularly for those preparing do the regional examinations.

For some weeks now, teachers have been lobbying the ministry for permission to return to school so that they can conduct face-to-face teaching and properly assist students with their School-Based Assessments (SBAs) and Internal Assessments (IAs). The minister had confirmed that the ministry is actively considering the request.
On Monday, the ministry began the consultation with the teachers and parents from the Georgetown and Region Three education districts. On Tuesday, metings were held with stakeholders in Regions Four, Five, Six and Seven. Regions One, Two, Eight, Nine and 10 have meetings scheduled for Wednesday.
During the meetings, the parents and teachers are given a chance to ask questions, suggest recommendations and share their thoughts and concerns about the matter at hand.

REASSURANCE
Chief Education Officer (CEO), Dr. Marcel Hutson is also attending the meetings. At Tuesday’s meeting with the parents of Region Four students, Dr. Hutson sought to reassure them that the ministry will be doing its part to keep students safe when they return to the classroom.

“We consider our parents as key stakeholders in the process of education delivery and we want parents to know that as a ministry we would do all that is necessary when school reopens. We have the children’s interest, their safety and security at heart,” Dr. Hutson conveyed.
He told the parents that the ministry cannot do it alone and used the opportunity to call on them to play their part in helping to ensure the students remain safe.

“We look forward to having a grand reopening, eventually, and those students writing their exams, we trust that they will do well and move on to higher institution of learning. The world is not waiting on us and we have to put in place measures that will allow us to progress,” Dr. Hutson noted.

The CXC examinations are usually written in May/June. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it is uncertain when it would be written and what format the exams are likely to take for the 2021 sitting. The council had administered a modified version for 2020 which included the exclusion of Paper Two. This led to a number of issues including many being awarded “ungraded” in a number of subjects and lower that projected results.
From all indications the examinations will be returned to its customary format, that is, Papers One, Two and Three, next year.

Phase two of print package distribution starts in Region One https://www.education.gov.gy/web/index.php/mediacenter/external-sources/item/6173-phase-two-of-print-package-distribution-starts-in-region-one https://www.education.gov.gy/web/index.php/mediacenter/external-sources/item/6173-phase-two-of-print-package-distribution-starts-in-region-one Phase two of print package distribution starts in Region One
— Matarkai secondary schools to benefit —distribution at Moruca schools complete

This week is the beginning of the print package distribution for secondary schools in the Matarkai, sub-region of Barima-Waini (Region One).

The Education Ministry has been providing printed materials to learners in the hinterland and riverine communities, as part of a comprehensive plan to minimise learning losses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

District Education Officer, Mr. Marti De Souza, told DPI via telephone on Monday, that the process has been ongoing in phases for primary and secondary schools.

“In Region One, we have three sub-regions, and in the Moruca sub-region the distribution has already been completed,” Mr. De Souza said.

Next is, “Matarkai, which [we] will be distributing to this week,” he said, adding that the materials have already arrived from Georgetown.

In addition to the secondary school students slated to benefit in this second phase, some students at the primary level will also receive learning materials.

The third sub-region, Mabaruma, is also set to receive packages, in addition to materials previously distributed by the Ministry at the primary level.news 20201028 4

Following the distribution, education delivery is not expected to remain static, as a return and redistribution system has been set up, with COVID-19 protocols in mind.

“All schools have set up a drop box so that when the materials come back, the parents don’t have to meet with anybody in particular, [and] there are boxes by grades,” he said.

At Moruca, Mr. De Souza reported that the system has been working well.

“Those materials have been coming in back, the teachers are marking [and] they’re returning to the children where necessary,” the Education Officer said.

Students in Region One are also being engaged with electronic gadgets, as the Region’s Department of Education budgeted and began distribution of tablets for students in September.

—3,000 first time registrants —classes to continue online

After several delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Guyana (UG) is welcoming some 9,000 students from both the Turkeyen and Tain campuses, for the 2020-21 academic year.

During a virtual orientation on Monday, UG Chancellor, Professor John Edward Greene, congratulated the batch, inclusive of 3,000 new registrants, for their endurance amid the pandemic.news 20201028 1

“You decided that postponing the opportunity for further education was not an option because in a spirit of resilience and defying all odds, you and your families made whatever sacrifices were necessary,” Professor Greene told students.

He also told them that the education sector would continue to progress both locally and internationally.

“All over the world, coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the future of higher education. It highlights the requirements for increased relevance and survival and revising the business module of many universities including our own while maintaining the mission to research, teaching and education,” the Chancellor said, even as he committed that the University Council will ensure Guyana is not left behind.

Meanwhile, Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paloma Mohamed, reminded students of the University’s 2040 blueprint, which seeks to ensure that every household across the nation has at least one university graduate.

She indicated that the University would continue to work toward this goal, despite unprecedented setbacks.news 20201028 2

Additionally, Director of the Office of Occupational Health and Safety, Ms. Olivia Parris-Bowen informed students that UG would be continuing education delivery online to prevent COVID-19 transmission.

However, for the few instances where students may be required to visit the campus, there will be strict COVID-19 measures in place, including mandatory social distancing, use of masks, and regular handwashing and sanitising.

“Personnel and students may also be required to fill and submit pre-screening questionnaires before access to the campus is granted, as a further chain of preventative measures,” Ms. Parris-Bowen added.

General and faculty orientations continue virtually until Friday.

Meanwhile, the first day of classes is set for November 2. Late applicants have until November 6 to register.

The University has relaxed all other deadlines, including change of registration, leave of absence, transfers, exemptions and withdrawals.

Schools may be reopened for CSEC/CAPE students https://www.education.gov.gy/web/index.php/mediacenter/external-sources/item/6171-schools-may-be-reopened-for-csec-cape-students https://www.education.gov.gy/web/index.php/mediacenter/external-sources/item/6171-schools-may-be-reopened-for-csec-cape-students Schools may be reopened for CSEC/CAPE students
The preparation ongoing for students to write the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) is likely to see the partial reopening of schools — but just for this purpose.

This was related by Minister of Education Priya Manickchand on Monday, when a team from the ministry met, virtually, with hundreds of teachers and parents from Georgetown and Region Three respectively, to begin consultations on the way forward.

“Our purpose is to make sure that we can help the students under our care to be the best version of themselves and that their futures are secure,” Minister Manickchand remarked.
Work is currently being done at schools across the country to prepare them for an eventual reopening, including the installation of facilities necessary to guard against the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Priority for school reopening is being given to students in the examination classes.

For some weeks now, teachers have been lobbying the ministry, seeking permission to return to school so that they can conduct face-to-face teaching and properly assist students with their School Based Assessments (SBAs) and Internal Assessments (IA).

A proposal that the Ministry of Education (MoE) is under active consideration. The Ministry is said to also be assessing the possibility of allowing students who are so desirous, of repeating the Fourth Form, after they received multiple requests for such.

The ministry currently has a policy that does not allow students to repeat a level, so honouring a request for students to repeat would require a policy change. Regional Education Officers are now required to send in lists with the number of students who have made requests, to further assess the situation.

Schools in Guyana have been closed since March because of the COVID-19 pandemic and teaching began virtually only in September; however, many parents believe that their children are severely affected by the learning loss and so they are not sufficiently prepared for the regional examinations.

The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC), has not yet disclosed what format the 2021 exams will take, after the council had administered a modified version of its exams for 2020.
Many of the teachers believe that the virtual learning is insufficient to prepare the students in the time remaining.

According to a statement from the ministry, during Monday’s meeting, Minister Manickchand told the teachers that the engagement between the CXC and the ministry has raised issues on how Guyana will handle these two important examinations next year.

“She reminded the teachers that the two examinations are controlled by CXC and as such Guyana has to ensure it puts systems in place that allow its students to be prepared to sit the examinations,” the statement said.

As engagements continue, the ministry is expected to meet with teachers from Regions Four, Five, Six and Seven on Tuesday and Regions One, Two, Eight, Nine and 10 On Wednesday. All meetings are scheduled to begin at 10:00hrs.

The Education Ministry on Monday engaged teachers on the possibility of reopening schools, specifically for students who will be sitting the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) in 2021.

Education Minister Priya Manickchand and Chief Education Officer Marcel Hutson joined senior education officials to address the matter virtually. Teachers from Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) and Georgetown were engaged on the subject, as preparations begin for both examinations. In fact, over 470 participants were engaged in these talks. Schools in Guyana have been closed since March of this year as a result of COVID-19. To date, COVID-19 cases in the country have surpassed 4000.
Over the course of this coming week, the Ministry’s intention is to meet with the entire cohort of teachers and parents of students writing the examinations. If so decided, students in these classes will return to school to facilitate arrangements for their respective assignments.
Classroom activity has been restricted since mid-March when Guyana started witnessing an increase in positive cases. Since then, schools have only been opened to facilitate the National Grade Six Assessment and the 2020 CSEC and CAPE exams for secondary students.
This year, the examinations were written in July and August, with a new structure, whereby only Paper One and the School-Based Assessments (SBAs) were used to grade students. This decision was made owing to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases globally.
Despite the pandemic which resulted in major setbacks in the delivery of education across the Caribbean, the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) recorded improved performances at this year’s CSEC examinations. A total of 382,783 candidates received acceptable results of Grades One to Three.
In terms of CSEC, Examination Services Division Director of Operations, Nicole Manning said there were improved overall pass rates in several subject areas. She underscored that in CAPE, there were acceptable grades (Grades One to Four), along with some improvement in some subject areas.
CXC officials at its Headquarters in Barbados revealed that the pass rate for CSEC increased by a 3.8 per cent when compared to the previous year’s figure. When the pandemic broke out in the Caribbean, most countries had already completed the curriculum.
In September, schools remained closed and an online approach was adopted for learning. It was decided that a variety of methods was needed to address challenges of epidemiological patterns, Internet access, and availability of resources through the usage of radio, the Internet, the Learning Channel, and physical workpapers.
Manickchand had announced that authorities would continue to review and evaluate the situation amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She had pointed out that for schools to be reopened, schools and their respective administrative bodies needed proper protective gear and facilities to enable safe learning.

- as Education Ministry looks to reopen doors for CSEC and CAPE students

Parents were reminded today of their importance in the education process as the Ministry of Education engaged over 1200 parents from Regions Four and Five virtually.
The Ministry specifically engaged parents of those students that will be writing the 2021 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination.
The Ministry of Education is considering the reopening of schools to prepare the students to write these two examinations next year.
It was noted by the Honourable Minister of Education Priya Manickchand that face-to-face engagement will be necessary for the students to complete the syllabi for the various subjects and the School Based Assessments (SBAs) at the CSEC level and the Internal Assessments (IAs) at the CAPE level.
Minister Manickchand said that the Ministry is aware that children want to matriculate and move on to higher education. As such, students will have to be prepared properly to write the examinations which will entail getting these students back into school, in a safe environment with their teachers.
Minister Manickchand explained that the Ministry cannot leave the matter to chance but rather provide options for the nation's children. She said that with the lack of connectivity in many instances and the practical SBAs and IAs that need to be completed, the reopening of schools for the examination classes is a necessary move.
She told parents that the Ministry will open the schools but parents must inform their children about what will be required of them.
She said that parents need to reinforce the COVID-19 protocols with their children and encourage them to follow those measures when in and out of the school environment.
She urged parents to consistently talk to their children about the importance of handwashing, social distancing and the wearing of masks.
Minister Manickchand also informed the parents that schools will be equipped with the necessary handwashing stations, toilets will be functioning and social distancing measures will be implemented.
Additionally, the Education Minister said that students, teachers and cleaners will be provided with packages including sanitizers, masks, face shields and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure safety.
Meanwhile, the Chief Education Officer, Dr. Marcel Hutson said that the meeting with parents was called because of the importance the Ministry attaches to education. "We value the delivery of quality education, life-long learning and equity," Dr. Hutson noted.
He told the parents that a partnership with parents is important to making these efforts successful. He said that it is important that the Ministry hears from parents and that parents hear from the Ministry so that whatever decisions are made will be practical, efficient and suited for the prevailing circumstances.
Chairing today's meetings with the parents were the Senior Education Officer (Mathematics), Mr. Saddam Hussain, and Deputy Chief Education Officer (Development) Ms. Volika Jaikishun. Also present during the meetings were the Permanent Secretary, Mr. Alfred King, Assistant Chief Education Officers, the Regional Education Officers and other Senior Education Officers within the Ministry.
Similar meetings are scheduled for the remaining regions during the course of this week.

A number of blackboards which were set up in several underprivileged communities in the city, have already piqued the interest of several students, who have copied the work and are looking forward to seeing what other school work will be…

The chalkboards were set up on Saturday at locations in East Ruimveldt, Albouystown, Rasville and Wortmanville, during visits from an education team led by Chief Education Officer, Dr. Marcel Hutson.

“I like the blackboard because it has work that I can do,” nine-year-old Roshana Pickett told the Guyana Chronicle, as she copied work from one of the boards set up outside of the Assembly of God Church on Durban Street.

The aspiring school teacher said she is looking forward to seeing more Mathematics and Science work placed on the board, as Mathematics is her favourite subject and Science is the subject she has the most difficulty with.

Learning materials were also distributed to the children during the visits. Dr Hutson was accompanied by District Education Officer, Deborah Hutson; Technical Facilitator, Kerwyn Jacob; School Inspector Lisa Ryce and teachers Leanchor Rowland and Caren Charles.
The chalkboard initiative is an adoption of a project that started a few weeks ago in Jamaica by school teacher, Taneka McKoy Phipp, as a means of assisting students as they continue to navigate getting an education during the closure of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Schools in Guyana have been closed since March, with learners currently being engaged virtually via a number of media and through the distribution of learning material to learners without access.

“It’s best they do work than to be lingering and playing,” commented Izetta Rogers, a mother of three who lives across the street from the chalkboard set up on Durban Street.
She said her children were excited to copy the work from the board even though it was not for their grade level.

Also excited about copying work from the blackboard was 11-year-old Nicholas Martin from Ketley Primary School who is currently preparing to write the 2021 National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA), and is very serious about his education as he is looking forward to running the country one day.

“I want to be the President to make Guyana better,” Martin shared with this newspaper.
Many of the children shared that they are eagerly awaiting the moment when the schools can reopen. They would prefer to be back in their classrooms, and have face-to-face teaching with the teachers.

“We need to go back to the school because sometimes you need the teachers to help you to understand better,” shared Maison, who said that she does encounter a lot of distractions at home.

Maison is a Grade Eight student who attends the Tutorial High School.

Today the Ministry of Education began its engagement with teachers at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) level to discuss the preparation of students for the 2021 examinations.

During a Zoom meeting today, CSEC and CAPE teachers were engaged by the Honourable Minister of Education Priya Manickchand, Chief Education Officer Dr. Marcel Hutson and other Senior Officers within the Ministry.
Minister Manickchand in her remarks thanked the teachers for stepping-up over the last seven months by whatever available means to engage their students.
She told the teachers that the engagement between the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) and the Ministry of Education has raised issues on how Guyana handles these two important examinations next year.
She reminded the teachers that the two examinations are controlled by CXC and as such Guyana has to ensure it puts systems in place that allows its students to be prepared to sit the examinations.
This preparation will include the completion of the Syllabi and the School Based Assessments (SBAs).
She said that to properly prepare students, it may require the physical reopening of schools at some point just for the CSEC and CAPE students to benefit from face-to-face instruction and completion of SBAs.
"Our purpose here is to make sure that we can help the students under our care to be the best version of themselves and that their futures are secure," Minister Manickchand remarked.
She noted that presently work is being done in schools across the country to prepare them for an eventual reopening. These works include the weeding of grass, installation of sinks, troughs and toilets with running water. Minister Manickchand added that cleaners will be available and they along with the teachers and students will receive packages containing vitamins, masks, sanitizer and alcohol sprays to ensure that they remain safe during school hours.
The Education Minister said that Central Ministry will be open to offering all necessary support to teachers particularly since there will not be a "one size fits all" approach.
Chief Education Officer, Dr. Marcel Hutson said that we are working in a different time that requires strong leadership, supportive parents and a concise plan moving forward.
Assistant Chief Education Officer (Secondary) (ag), Mr. Ameer Ali addressed the issue of SBA preparation while the Deputy Chief Education Officer (Development) Ms. Volika Jaikishun addressed the issue of textbooks and attendance records.
During today's meeting, teachers made several suggestions on how students can be prepared for the two examinations under the most efficient and safest conditions.
During the course of the week, the Ministry will be engaging teachers and parents/guardians at the CSEC and CAPE levels from each region to discuss the said issue so that informed decisions can be made moving forward. Today's meeting was attended by almost 500 teachers from the two education districts.
